[00:00:00] Hello, everybody. I’m Roberto and welcome to “My brain when I try New Foods,”
[00:00:07] a weekly dramatic reinterpretation of what my brain does when I try new foods!
[00:00:12] Last week, we tried Brussels sprouts and, boy, did I learn a lot about Belgium?
[00:00:16] Do I remember any of it?
[00:00:19] But I thought about it! Which is what this show’s about!
[00:00:22] This week, I have a very special gift from a very special, wonderful darling lovely friend named Alexis.
[00:00:28] So I am super stoked. So [00:00:30] let’s see what it is.
[00:00:36] Crazy pop, Crazy pop? Crazy pop? Is that . Like,
[00:00:39] like (singing:) “dirty pop”?
[00:00:41] But like that wasn’t actually dirty, right? It’s this isn’t actually crazy. But then like, like what is crazy?
[00:00:48] Right? Crazy… Ho- Cr-. Oh, Crazy Hot Pop Chips!
[00:00:53] I’m- okay. Crazy hot. Oh, well,
[00:00:56] Oh, I’ve definitely been called that by like a man or two, you know,
[00:01:00] [00:01:00] a crazy hot
[00:01:01] but also like hot.
[00:01:04] And like crazy.
[00:01:06] They feel very different and I’ll say that…
[00:01:07] (reading:) “Crazy hot and insanely good.”
[00:01:14] What is that? “What’s it like to eat crazy hot Popchips?
[00:01:20] It’s kind of like kissing a fire-breathing dragon.
[00:01:26] So turn the heat up with bread, chili peppers, and a hint of cheddar cheese.”
[00:01:30] sorry. Vegans.
[00:01:31] “If you like it hot, go ahead and feel the burn. Consider yourself warned.”
[00:01:37] That sounds like the Tinder bio of, like, a man with a goatee.
[00:01:45] And, like, a collection of beer cans and
[00:01:47] , like, who will absolutely Gaslight you and then call you crazy…
[00:01:51] not hot.
[00:01:58] I don’t really like pop chips.
[00:02:00] I think they’re like, like the cheat of the cheat meal, you know what I mean?
[00:02:03] You’re like, “I want chips and like,
[00:02:04] I want to indulge, but like potato chips are just super greasy
[00:02:07] and fatty, and like, I’m gonna, you know,
[00:02:10] I’m on my, my health kicks,
[00:02:11] I’m just going to have some pop chips.”
[00:02:14] It’s like, it’s just food cheat meals are weird. They’re stupid. Just eat, you know, like, indulge. Like, “indulging.” That’s weird. Right? Like food is weird. I love food.
[00:02:30] okay so who defines “pop”? You know, like the music, like isn’t pop, just pop…
[00:02:41] So like anything that’s like in the cultural zeitgeist-
[00:02:43] like, right now? It’s like super trap heavy, but like leaning towards like 70s summer jam territory.
[00:02:50] But like then the Grammys give out like “best pop vocal album,”
[00:02:55] like what’s a pop vocal,
[00:02:59] Dua Lipa has a
[00:03:01] I’ll give her that.
[00:03:05] But then who defines “crazy”?
[00:03:06] You know? Like who, like what is “crazy”?
[00:03:08] I have to Google them.
[00:03:09] Okay. So we have a few results now.
[00:03:12] Um, “someone who is crazy is insane.”
[00:03:18] What does that mean?
[00:03:21] “Mentally deranged, especially as manifested in a wild or aggressive way.”
[00:03:26] Do pop chips have brains?
[00:03:29] I’m sorry, vegans.
[00:03:31] [00:03:30] “Extremely enthusiastic.”
[00:03:32] Okay. I’m skipping that one.
[00:03:33] It makes no sense.
[00:03:35] What is the correlation? You know?
[00:03:37] Oh, here’s one from urban dictionary:
[00:03:39] ” someone who is wild and fun.
[00:03:42] Someone who will go against the rules
[00:03:44] , someone who does what they want, no matter the consequences,
[00:03:48] someone who would do anything,
[00:03:50] especially for love”.
[00:03:54] It’s a fucking chip.
[00:03:55] What more is there to-
[00:03:57] y’all are making this…
[00:04:00] are making this way more complicated than it needs to be.
[00:04:02] It’s just- crazy hot po-. Just call it:
[00:04:07] powdered Puffed Potato Chips.
[00:04:09] It has much more of a ring to it.
[00:04:11] It just makes more sense.
[00:04:26] (chomps on chip) chomp,
[00:04:32] (more chomping)
[00:04:32] (more chomping)
[00:04:32] [00:04:30] it just taste like normal, hot. Wait, wait.
[00:04:53] Is that, is that like? The point? Wait
[00:05:02] [00:05:00] Mind-blowing.
[00:05:03] Oh, that’s- you’re so good. Crazy. This is normal.
[00:05:08] it’s just normal…
[00:05:09] That’s all the time we have for today, folks.
[00:05:13] Tune in next week when I try Buffalo sauce.
